Buffalo Horn has meaning and properties of creating a calm mind. It is an amulet that keeps away destructive thoughts or negative feelings. It calm give you peace and rest in your life.
An athame (or athamé) is a black-handled ceremonial double-edged dagger, one of several magical tools used in traditional witchcraft, typically to cut energies or draw boundaries and other sacred symbols.
This is a ceremonial or ritual blade only and does not have a sharpened edge. As a ritual knife, it is never used to cut anything physical. Athames are NOT meant to be used as a weapon. These sacred tools are meant for rituals and spells only, never to be raised as a weapon even for self defense. Treat your athame as an extension of yourself.
The Athame is an instrument of high power and of a very personal nature. You should not flash it around, and above all, you should not let it be touched or used by other people.
This athame is brand new and has never been used. Therefore, it is “dormant” & has yet to be given life. The more you use it, the more you place your energies/will into this ritual tool, the more this blade will take on a life of its own. You need to respect your athame. Misuse will build negative energies and your athame may rebel against you.
To prevent this, ensure you treat your blade with respect and dignity. A good way to ensure such respect would be to offer the athame knife as an offering each night before you go to sleep or every morning when you awaken to one of the gods or goddesses you worship and pray to. Say a prayer as you are knelt down, with your head down looking at the ground and the blade held out in both hands, palms up in front of you. After the prayer lay the blade down on your altar and keep it there until you are ready to use it once more.
As a masculine principle, the black-handled athame is often used in combination with the chalice, as feminine principle, evoking the act of procreation, as a symbol of universal creativity.
The athame represents the magical element of fire, associated with the Sun and the Horned God; while the chalice represents the magical element of water, associated with the Moon and the Goddess. The union of the two then represents the union of God and Goddess, male and female, sun and moon, fire and water.
Cleansing Your Athame Knife
Cleansing your athame is quite simple and easy.
Dry Salt cleansing

You can use your athame for practically any ritual or spell you perform.
Protection rituals: Cast and open your circle as you would any ritual and set up all your other tools(incense, candles, gemstones, etc.) when this is completed, sit cross legged in the center of your circle and begin to meditate. Imagine energies building up inside of you that will keep you safe from negative influences and forces. As these white light energies completely surround you, imagine these energies being channeled from your core and outwards so that it surrounds your entire body in a shield.
Perform this meditation for as long as possible, and when you feel you ready pick up your athame by the hilt and hold it firmly. Stand up and while standing, hold your athame out in front of you and begin to imagine this protection energy being channeled into the athame from your body, through the hilt, and into the blade.
Imagine in your mind’s eye that the blade is glowing in a white protective light, and when you feel that you have charged the blade, take the athame and begin to trace in the air in front of you a symbol of a pentacle. As you are doing this, try to imagine the pentacle forming in white light as you trace the design with the athame.
Once you have finished tracing your pentacle, stand before it and imagine the light getting brighter and brighter until it is blinding. When you reach this point, just through the pentacle and imagine it’s protective white energies merging with your own to strengthen the shield that you had previously put around you.
Love ritual: Similar to the above example, only instead of imagining white protective energies surrounding you, you would imagine pink colored energy flowing through you and your body. Imagine a sense of love, peace, and harmony, and that you DESERVE love, and love will find you.
Instead of tracing a pentacle, you would trace a heart in the air with your athame and then picture that energy as the same pinkish rose color. Step through the heart as you would the pentacle.
Rituals and spells when created by you are limitless in the possibilities you can do with them.

Yes! We do custom orders. Message me via etsy to discuss the details and work up a quote.
We use 100% from Nature Ingredients. The majority of our herbs are organic and ethically wildcrafted and foraged locally. The rest are typically garden grown in our medicinal garden. We do outsource when needed and always choose quality, certified organic sources. We try to utilize our local small business owners but do have several things that are shipped from non local small family farms.
We use Fair Trade, Raw and Organic Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter. We use unrefined butters as this keeps all the vitamins, minerals and other natural properties of the butters intact. Our cocoa butter is non deodorized as the process of deodorizing (removing the naturally occurring soft cocoa scent) will destroy the antioxidants that naturally occur in the butter.
Free from chemicals! Well, sort of. Technically, Chemicals make up all matter. That means stating that we use no chemicals would be a lie as the scientific definition of chemical means that most everything (other than "energy" itself) IS a chemical. But we know what you mean and we ARE Free from Parabens, Pesticides, Petroleum, Phthalates, Sulfates, SLS, Artificial Colors, Synthetic Fragrances, and all the other yucky stuff.

Of course. There's a wide range of allergies and sensitivities out there and it's possible to be allergic to any ingredient used as well as cross allergies. Some of the butters and oils used can trigger nut allergies. We recommend messaging us directly for more info prior to buying if you're aware of any major allergens. Allergies can start at any stage and age so if an unsuspected allergy occurs when using a product, discontinue use immediately and consult your doctor.
Everything is handmade to order in small batches using fair trade, organic, raw and wildcrafted ingredients whenever possible. This ensures your batch is fresh and the highest quality. We put our heart and soul into our products and trust that the plants will offer their healing to all that they touch.
Your products are artisan made and handcrafted in an earth conscious, plant loving, cruelty free, organic, always made with love and intention home. We are a smoke free "facility" and have one feathered friend; a cockatoo named Cotton. He's a 35 year old Goffin's cockatoo, a rescue, and recently lost his life mate to a tumor. He lives his best life upstairs, enjoys children's songs, fresh fruits and veggies, and Walker Texas ranger.

Unfortunately, I am bombarded constantly by other shops, herbalists, and companies for my personal and family recipes. It is impossible for me to know who is genuinely just curious and who intends to steal and recreate my offerings. Due to the fact that this has happened to me with direct competitors, I do not share my ingredient for nonallergic or personal aversion specific requests.
However, if you are a budding herbal ally and are interested in knowledge, I am tickled pink to be part of your learning process!
Please understand that once your order ships we are no longer in control of what happens to your items.
If an item was lost in the mail and you paid for priority shipping we will file a claim, as soon as the claim is accepted we will issue a full refund. Please note if a package is marked as delivered we can not file a claim.
If an item was lost in the mail and you selected ground shipping at checkout we can not file a claim. At this point in time we will submit a mail recovery request with the USPS.

Due to the nature of our products, we do not take returns or refunds. There are very special circumstances under which we may choose to refund an item or order.
Sending an unapproved return will not result in store credit or a refund and the returned item may be disposed of on your behalf.
During the summer, warm months, or warm weather:
Please remove your balms from the mailbox or porch as soon as they are delivered. We can not control shipping times or the weather (although we wish we could) and can not refund, replace or accept returns of melted balms. If your balms melt, using a handheld mixer can be useful, and just place it in a cool, dark location, or to quickly reset them, pop them in the fridge for 5-15 minutes. The balm quality should not be affected. Also, the balms may whiten in cooler temps; just give a stir! This will also not affect the quality. Thank you for your understanding.
There's no strong psychotropic. It's more of a gentle assist in opening the third eye, Sahasrara, and Agnya. I'm an herbalist so I choose to work with a combination of metaphysical attributes and ayurvedic. Some herbs in the psychic blend have very mild sedative properties, mostly to aid in relaxing and accessing the energies. I like to say "they're herbs, not magic." These blends offered are to simply help you access and expand your own magical intent. They have historical, traditional, and mythological ties to specific powers, but wouldn't necessarily invoke powers you do not have or haven't yet cultivated. These tea blends are lovely mild alternatives of safe herbs to open the gateway to accessing what you desire.
Cast iron products are traditionally made by casting melted iron ore into a mold.
Lost-wax process, also called cire-perdue, is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. The wax is then melted off. Some wax residue may remain, especially in crevices and design features. To remove any remaining wax, you can gently scrape it away with a tool or your fingernail. Clean with a damp cloth and dry well to prevent any rusting.
